Things to do this Fall in the Pacific Northwest

Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons to see and experience Bothell and the surrounding area, making it a perfect time to visit. Pack your camera, dress in layers and get outside in the Pacific Northwest this Fall. We’ve got pumpkin patches, corn mazes, leaf-peeping, and whale watching.

Farms with loads of family fun

For your family photo op with pumpkins or a corn maze adventure, plan a visit to Craven Farms in Snohomish. The farm boasts over 30 activities to enjoy and more than 50 varieties of pumpkins!

Must-visit leaf-peeping locations

The foliage in our area begins to burst with the colors of fall as early as late September - with October being the prime period to enjoy the full display. Go for a bike ride on the Sammamish River Trail or take a stroll at the Park at Bothell Landing to see Bothell dressed in breathtaking hues of vibrant oranges, blazing reds, deep burgundy and the brightest of yellows.

Yes, you can whale watch in the Fall

Mid-October is the best time for whale watching as the salmon runs are the strongest. Tours and charters are available in the Salish Sea within Skagit Valley through San Juan Safaris in Seattle’s Friday Harbor, and Puget Sound Express on the Puget Sound in Edmonds.

Whether you’re up for a corn maze adventure, a day of hiking to see the beautiful fall colors, or just sipping wine and making S’mores by a fire in the evening—Bothell is the perfect place to serve as your launchpad for all of the Pacific Northwest’s fall activities. Remember our Sip & Stay and Gal Pal Getaway for discounts on hotel, food, drinks and more while you’re here.
